The Financing and Project Development section of the City of Sacramento is responsible for initiating engineering projects on city-owned public highways, known as Capital Improvement Projects (CIPs). These projects are funded through a variety of sources, including local funds, state and federal grants, and private foundations. In addition to providing funding for CIPs, the City also offers a range of other funding opportunities for community projects in Sacramento, CA. The Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation provides financial support for young artists who are studying or in an early or developing stage of their career.
The Foundation backs those who work in painting, drawing, sculpture or engraving and demonstrate the determination and talent needed to pursue a lifelong career in their artistic practice. The Del Paso Heights Neighborhood Fund was created to back impactful organizations that provide critical services in the Del Paso Heights neighborhood of Sacramento. The Atrium stands in solidarity with communities and people affected by 400 years of racism, colonization and genocide of indigenous peoples. The mission of Meals on Wheels by ACC is to support and maintain the independence and dignity of older people in their homes and communities. This year, the OAC will present the Sacramento Arts & Culture Match Program, which provides supplementary funding for creative, community-led, public-funded place-making projects in neighborhoods across the city.
Contributions to TEAM will help fund many important projects designed to benefit the animals at the Sacramento County Animal Shelter. The objectives of the Funding & Project Development team are to initiate projects that are feasible, bankable, reflect the needs and objectives of the community and provide safe mobility to all users. In addition, the Funding & Project Development section works with the Active Mode Specialist to identify CIPs that help meet the objectives of the Vision Zero Program and the Bikeway Master Plan.
